Sounds like your brake light switch is either stuck or it needs to be replaced.  It is located on your brake pedal and is very easy to change and costs around $20-$30.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

2004 acura tl 6speed standard. VSA light/triangle light/parking brake light come on.


your vsa is vehicle stability assist that works with the abs system, verify brake calipers for proper functioning, sounds like breaks stick and cant return efficiently after breaking, vsa is a traction control light, if both lights remain on without flashing, those systems are disabled due to a problem, scan vehicle for possible abs sensor malfunction

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am Track off light and ABS light and Sevice Vehicle Soon light stays on all the time. Sometimes the emerge light comes on.(i, P light). For the Service Vehicle light, I...


the traction control system works off of the abs system so there is a code in the abs module that needs to be pulled so you know were to start to check the system out.the service engine light is a different system all together and there is a code in the ecm that must be pulled so you know were to start to check to repair that system.you don`t say why you jumped to the conclusion that the gas cap set a code.the emergency brake light will come on if the e-brake is not all the way in the off position(something may be holding the lever up just enough to put the light on.the switch could be misadjusted and needs to e readjusted.

Parking brake light stays on.


Do you have a separate parking brake light and a "regular" brake light? Most vehicles only have one light, it illuminates when the parking brake is set, but it also illuminates when the system detects a failure anywhere in the brake system.

You could have a separate light for the anti-lock brake system (ABS ).

Your description of a light that is on till you apply the brakes is usually a sign of some sort of system brake failure. Start with brake fluid level, then inspect the brakes at each wheel, looking for a leak.

If nothing detected there, then you likely have something more serious. (Master brake cyclinder bad, possible something in the ABS brakes, etc.)

Others may disagree, but I would suggest not driving the vehicle (except to a mechanic) until this is corrected.

91 Buick Century 2.5 L brake light on & battery light on


For the Brake light to stay on and the fluid is up...sounds like your sensor is playing dead......

For the battery to die after only (4) hours..you have a very big drain on the battery itself.....without the vehicle right here to look at would be very hard to even guess...electrical problems are a hands on chore...

I'd take it to your garage/mechainc

Lights stay on


make sure the brake fluid reservor is full if is not fill it and take it to an auto repair as soon as you can to check for posible brake fluid leaks, and most of vehicles are desing to operate even with light on if there is not leaks you vechicle will still stop but the abs system will not operate unless you fix the light problenm
